Much to the dismay of Bond fans around the world, the Bond In Motion exhibit permanently closed its London doors back in January 2020. But this month, the collection of 007 cars has found a new home in the Petersen Automotive Museum in Los Angeles, open to the public once again.
Complete with a diverse curation of over 30 of the films’ iconic vehicles, the showcase is sure to heal all wounds left from the seemingly endless wait for No Time To Die. With the legendary motorcycles, boats, submarines, helicopters, and even scale filming models set to be on display, fans of the popular spy franchise will be treated to a trip through the 27 films.
Perhaps most exciting is the 1977 Lotus Esprit S1 Submarine from The Spy Who Loved Me getting the love it well and truly deserves. In the 59 years of James Bond films, this underwater vehicle from the Roger Moore-era might be the best gadgetry to come from the mind of the quartermaster Q. Frankly, nobody does it better.
This collaboration between EON Productions and The Ian Fleming Foundation, with support from Metro Goldwyn Mayer (MGM), will include all of the enchanting exploits of Fleming’s world in celebration of the 60th anniversary of Dr No‘s release in 1962 and the character’s cinematic legacy. This is the first official exhibition in the United States to feature original vehicles from the James Bond films.
The Bond in Motion exhibit offers visitors a rare up-close experience of the most iconic vehicles associated with the world’s most famous secret agent. If you happen to find yourself in Los Angeles between September 25, 2021, and October 22, 2022, you can purchase tickets to the Bond In Motion exhibit below.
